A Post Medieval ceramic weight, possible a seine net sinker dating from AD 1600-1800. The net sinker is axe shaped, it is triangle in plan and it has a tapering cross-section. There is a perforation at the peak and a knife cut V shaped groove running through from back to front along the top edge. The fabric of the weight is oxidised and orange in colour.
